The atmosphere was lovely, the decor beautiful and the food excellent. Wonderful variety of foods and the service was very good. Nice to have two very outgoing gentlemen servicing the wine and beer area.

We had the Sunday brunch and overall the food selections were ok but the food taste was pretty average. The brunch cost was $29 and I don't believe I got my money's worth. The desserts were average with not many selections. Being a buffet my expectations weren't really that high and that's pretty much where this buffet would rank.

We had breakfast/brunch/lunch buffets (the meals tend to bleed into one another) at the Aria, Mirage, MGM, Mandalay Bay, and Palms (the last being the only non-My Vegas buffet) during our last trip to Vegas. Without question, the Mandalay Bay was the one that we least enjoyed (Mirage, btw, was a close second). To start, when we ate there last... More

Lunch buffet.....The only good item was the cook to order pasta bar...a few nicer items than a typical buffet, but most all the items I selected did not have any special taste and kinda generic and bland...drink service was good...dessert bar had a poor selection, nothing unique but just standard cakes, cookies, and pie. Maybe their dinner buffet is more... More

We went to the Bayside Buffet because it came free with our rooms. The food for the most part was just average, not bad, but not outstanding. The ethnic dishes were the best, the tamales and the sweet & sour beef were my favorites. The dessert section was wonderful though, it offered a lot of choices and they were all... More

Not my idea to eat here, being against such things, but I was very impressed with the food and service. Bud Light and wine were included, as were great desserts and plenty of crab legs for the kids. Plenty of space for our group and we had a very fun and social visit.

We visited the buffet for breakfast and evening buffets on our recent trip to LV. A great selection of food and very tasty. The servers were great, happy and very attentive. The only gripe we had was when we were visiting for the evening buffet was that we had to wait in line for approx 30 mins as there was... More

went all the way to Mandalay Bay for the buffet and wasn't disappointed. Despite it being breakfast time, the two best food choices was an exquisitely booked piece of beef and incredible pizza. I had pizza in every buffet I went to in Vegas and MB buffet is the best.

So it wasn't a gourmet experience, but Bayside Buffet had what I was looking for in a breakfast and it was a great value. We had breakfast at other nearby restaurants and scoped out other menus too. At Bayside Buffet, for around $18 per person, you don't need to feel compelled to eat a ton of food and it's still... More
